COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our unique version of an ancient style. A style as old as the ocean trade routes of the last centuries Great Ships. Not as old as the equator they had to cross twice enroute, nor as old as the 10,000 or so miles of Di-Hydrogen Oxide and Sodium upon which they sailed, but older than the Circulithium-4 Lentloid that binds the Lupulin Quartnate onto your taste buds. Weird. Think about it. Now stop. OK, go again, now stop. Think again, and stop. But we digress. Made with 43 different hops and 65 various malts, this redolent ale will likely float your boat, whatever planet you’re on.

This is a really decent IPA that I was surprised with. Nice bite and lots of hops. Will drink again

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2004
(Draft) Typical West Coast soappy, sweet, piney IPA. This sample maybe suffering from age.

hopdog (9133) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Poured a medium to dar amber with a large off white head. Fair amount of particles. Hoppy smelling with aromas of pineapples, pine, citris and oranges. Starts off sightly sweet and ends in a nice hoppy bitterness. Orange tastes. Very good IPA.

Goblincat (383) - Westland, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Pours golden orange with white head and some haze. Sharp hoppy nose. As expected, a nice sharp bite of floral hops flavor, however one mixed with what appears to be unsweetened grapefruit juice. Good bitter taste in a decent IPA.

ross (2100) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2004
pours out a reddish orange color with lots of hoppy peices floating in the bottom of it. not near like laconner dh, but still, a good amount. poured into my newly acquired st bernardus glass :) little to no head on this beer. smell is hoppy, grapefruity and piney like most ipas. taste is sweet and hoppy. this is a pretty good ipa and a typical of a CA ipa. not bad at all, i like it. very smooth and easy drinking.

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 9, 2004
This had a creamy eggshell white head that rode on an amber beer that was hazy and showed some yeast sediment from the disturbance of it’s bottle conditioned yeast cake. Caramel aroma sets the stage for the big grapefruit hop that is up front. Creamy sticky smoothness with a long bitter finish. Nice.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Bottle. Two finger off white head capping a cloudy light brown/dark gold body. Strong hop nose. Typical IPA flavors-bitter hops, some citrus, a heavy dose of lemon, and a little salty taste (!!!). The salt taste fits in really well with the overall taste. Finish is quick and crisp, like lemonade. This is a very smooth drinkable IPA. I Would gladly have 10 or 12 more.

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Light amber brown with lots of stuff floatin around in the glass.. Lemon hop aroma. Pretty big lemon grapefruit hop presence. This is a pretty good IPA, but nothing too spectacular.

hayduke (3463) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 27, 2004
I got this in a 22 oz bottle. It is hard not to compare this to Lagunitas Maximus as it is very similar. Head is not as white and intense, but still attractive. The color is a unique red/gold/orange amber. Good hoppy flavor and nice finish. This to me is what an IPA is supposed be like. Great balance, and simply a very well crafted brew.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2004
Pours a nice amber color with a silky white head that leaves moderate lacing. Nice fresh hopped aroma. The hops carry through in the taste nicely with a good bitterness towards the end. Nice crisp taste. Slightly acidic taste afterward, but still a nice brew.
